Marine Systems | Accredited 6 month program | Enrolls in September & March
Transform your passion for boating into a meaningful and in-demand career as a certified marine technician. IYRS’ hands-on Marine Systems program will prepare you to seamlessly enter the marine industry as a systems technician. Students will take the ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) certification exams for the relevant modules. ABYC certification is considered the highest level of industry certification available in the United States. Students will also sit for the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) Basic Marine Electronics Installer certification exam.
At IYRS, you’ll learn the theory and technologies of both stand-alone and fully-integrated systems and the inner workings of a powerboat down to the most meticulous details. By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to install, repair, and troubleshoot everything from engines and electrical systems to computer-based electronics and hydraulics.
During this program, you'll build free-standing, complete simulation panels that contain the essential systems that go into modern boats and apply the knowledge you've learned in an industry externship, gaining valuable resume-building experience.
